The Potter's Wheel
The year is nineteen-seventeen. America has just gone to war. Ruth Garland has earned her nursing certificate and looks forward to fulfilling her dream of becoming a medical missionary.
She returns home to visit her sister, Rachel, and learns Rachel has only a few weeks to live.
Rachel begs Ruth to promise to take care of her three children. "Bring them up in the church. Show them how to live a Christian life."
Ruth promises. And then her sister asks her to keep one more promise...
"My dear husband has agreed. When I am gone, will you marry my Henry?"
